15 Struggle Cakes That Should Probably Just Be Put Out Of Their Misery

Baking isn’t a skill that comes naturally to everybody. As someone whose cakes tend to explode all over the inside of my oven, I can attest to this fact. I mean, sure, it seems like the process should be relatively easy: follow the instructions, and you end up with a perfect, delicious cake. Unfortunately, some sort of evil voodoo always tends to happen somewhere in the middle of the process, leaving behind a melee of splattered batter and sunken dough. I’ve done the legwork, and I’ve concluded that I probably shouldn’t be trusted with baking powder, icing sugar, or spring form pans.

Fortunately, it seems that I’m good company.

Here are some truly depressing and miserable cake attempts that manage to be both heartbreakingly earnest and aesthetically awful. Someone should probably smother them with a pillow, because they are straight-up struggling.

But hey, at least looking at them will make you feel better about your own baking prowess.
